Put simply, Jackie Knee wants to make people healthier. She’s worked at that singular goal in rural Thailand as a Fulbright Fellow, in the United States at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and at Georgia Tech as a fifth-year Ph.D. student in environmental engineering. Once she finishes her degree later this year, she’ll continue it in Britain as the 2019 Marshall Sherfield Fellow.
The Federal Highway Administration has awarded selective Eisenhower Transportation Fellowships to three School of Civil and Environmental Engineering graduate students this year, supporting their work to improve travel forecasting models, rural transit services, and road safety.
